The Touchstone Distinguished Books Award for 2018 is now open for nominations. The awards, generally considered the highest honor in the haiku field, are bestowed annually on published collections or works of scholarship that represent significant contributions to English-language haiku. Collections must be comprised primarily of haiku, or must discuss haiku as its primary focus. Our distinguished panel is comprised of poets, editors and scholars.
Any English-language book or other book-length production that is of or about haiku (and related forms) published during 2018 is eligible for the award. You may nominate your own book(s), in which case please remit 2 copies before December 31, 2018 to
